A MALAYSIAN MUM writes from the Bahamas:

If we all have this sensitivity and abhorrence to bullying, no matter when we realise it, we cannot stand by while bullying occurs, whether it's by a kid on a playground or by an unjust government. We have to thank the educators in our midst, the teachers, the activists, the volunteers, the whistle-blowers, the journalists, the investigative reporters and Barisan Rakyat bloggers in Malaysia; individuals who have decided that it isn't enough to be good only in theory. These individuals who take their guts in their hands each day to stand up for what is so wrong even though it is institutionalised. In Malaysia, these individuals who have come to shout together and educate their fellow people are Bangsa Malaysia. You people who have stood up and not only shouted out your concerns and your ideas and you willingness to ACT, but have actually ACTED; I say to you: ROCK ON KAWANS! You have even influenced the tiny group of Malaysians here in the Bahamas to identify ourselves as Malaysians and not Chinese-Malaysian or Indian-Malaysian. YOU ROCK! Don't stop now, you have come so far in such a short time. The time is right for justice to be served. Baha'u'llah; Prophet Founder of the Baha'i Faith exhorts us to uphold justice "'O Son of Spirit! The best beloved of all things in My sight is Justice; turn not away therefrom if thou desirest Me, and neglect it not that I may confide in thee. By its aid thou shalt see with thine own eyes and not through the eyes of others, and shalt know of thine own knowledge and not through the knowledge of thy neighbour. Ponder this in thy heart; how it behoveth thee to be. Verily justice is My gift to thee and the sign of My loving-kindness. Set it then before thine eyes.'
Baha'u'llah, The Hidden Words, 2

When foundation is solid as a rock
It's easier to withstand all shock
With more injustice to fully unlock
Without having any saints to mock

"They" being ISA detainees AND their families...

If we can't get them out (yet), let do more for them.... get visiting rights, times... & the hard part... getting the family to Taiping.

good start here, dbl-O

Hi Zorro,
Can the bloggers start a fund so that we can bring the families to the prison so that they can see their husbands or fathers?
I would be more than willing to make a contribution.
It breaks my heart that some of these families cannot afford to make a visit to their loved one because of financial constraints.
It would be great if there could be a fund set-up via MT or your blogsite where we may send in contributions for this purpose.
Thanks for blogging. You don't know how much it means to us ordinary people that you have given us a means to contribute our ideas, get valuable MSM alternative information, and feel empowered by being able to do our part.
I fly my yellow ribbon and am waiting eagerly for my Free RPK shirts.

Wait, he has never been to school and neither has his siblings? That is unacceptable!

Call up PERKIM (knowing that Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat's overwhelmed)!

It can be a tad unwieldy to have too many of us raising funds either here or at MT.

Donations can all be directed to this dedicated account:

You may bank in your donations to May Bank 162209939776, under name of Nashita Mohd Noor, GMI's treasurer.
